Everything You Need to Know About the New Starbucks Reserve® Empire State Building® Store

Check out the newest, most elevated coffee experience in NYC. ☕️

by New York Bucket List


A brand new Starbucks Reserve® Empire State® store just opened inside one of New York’s most iconic landmarks. Spanning 23,000 square feet and three floors, the Starbucks Reserve® Empire State Building® store offers an array of experiences, from guided tasting flights and hands-on coffee workshops to locally-inspired craft cocktails and an extensive artisan menu.

The new Starbucks Reserve® store pays tribute to the craft of coffee making through unique coffee experiences, but it also pays tribute to the Empire State Building itself. The store murals, art, and design elements all incorporate the original art-deco style of the classic skyscraper.

Throughout the space, you’ll find seamless design, with each level taking you even deeper into the love of coffee and craft. Whether you’re a coffee aficionado or simply curious about what makes a great cup of coffee, there’s something for everyone at the Starbucks Reserve® Empire State Building® store.


Concourse Level

The Concourse Level is where you can take your love for coffee to the next level. This space offers four hands-on experiences, like "Whiskey Barrel-Aged 101" and "Fun With Spirits-Free Spritzes," where you can build refreshing spritzes like cucumber mint, and strawberry. You can also experience being a "Brewtender for a Day" or take a class with a mixologist that teaches you how to create the perfect espresso martini at "Espresso Martini Flight Fundamentals."

The Concourse Level also has an Experience Lounge, where you can sit back, relax, and order food right from your phone. Stop by the Innovation Bar (tickets required), where you’ll be taken on an immersive tasting journey. It’s the only place to try new beverages crafted using the Starbucks proprietary Cold Pressed Espresso Brewing method. Cold-pressed espresso starts cold and stays cold, preserving and revealing flavors from creamy and indulgent to refreshingly brisk. Make sure to book ahead for all workshops and coffee experiences here!


Level One

At the main entrance of the Starbucks Reserve® Empire State® store, you’ll find a menu that offers Starbucks classics like Caramel Macchiato and seasonal Peppermint Mocha, as well as exclusive Starbucks Reserve® beverages like the Hazelnut Bianco Latte, Whiskey Barrel-Aged Cold Brew, or Nitro Almondmilk Mocha. You can also choose from a variety of elevated Princi® menu items to enjoy throughout the day including avocado toast, various pizzas and pastries, breakfast sandwiches with prosciutto, tomato basil soup, raspberry cheesecake, tiramisu, and several other grab-and-go items.

Level One also has a variety of curated products that include exclusive merchandise like one-of-a-kind Empire State Building mugs, apparel featuring designs by local artists, and whole bean coffee bags to take home. We recommend picking up a bag of Starbucks Reserve® Empire State Building® Microblend coffee to take home, with notes of red and black fruit joined by vanilla and spice, only available at this location.

Need to make a pit stop on the way into the office? Mobile Order Pickup is perfect for New Yorkers on the go. Choose from elevated menu items like a flaky Raisin ad Pistachio Girella, Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese on Brioche, and more.

Note: Mobile Order Pickup is currently not available on the Starbucks app, only online.


Level Two

Level Two of the Starbucks Reserve® Empire State Building® store features a full Restaurant & Bar with exclusive shareable cocktails and entrees in a masterfully designed space that echoes the bold art deco style in an updated setting. Here, you’ll find strong geometric patterns, rich colors, and even restored elements that are original to the building, including the hand-riveted steel columns from construction in 1930.

Every meal at the Restaurant & Bar begins with a complimentary coffee tasting, a nod to Starbucks’ long-standing tradition of sharing a moment of connection over coffee. The expanded menu features dishes from the renowned Italian boutique bakery and cafe, Princi. Only high-quality ingredients are used to craft delicious menu items like cornetti and focaccia, pizzas and salads, lasagna, and cakes and tarts. Ready to eat? You can learn more and make a reservation here.

Not to miss are the shareable cocktails found only at the Starbucks Reserve® Empire State® store. Try a Big Apple Blossom—complete with gin, pear brandy, honey and ginger syrup, and garnished with an apple blossom—or the Empire Negroni, featuring the signature Starbucks Reserve® Empire State Building® Microblend coffee infused with 15-year rum, and garnished with an orange swath. Each drink serves up to eight people.
